This is from sometime last year I believe for my boyfriend's birthday or our two year. I forget. Anyway, it's made from a home back terra cotta looking clay.... I'm not sure what type. I designed it to hold guitar picks and tooth picks, but he puts notes from me in it with the picks Smiley . The style of guitar was based off of him 60's electric guitar he bought early last year that he loves. Here it is, hope you enjoy.
The original plan for the strings was for them to be wire of actual guitar strings, but that didn't work out so it got badly painted on strings Sad . and sorry about the off center picture, it showed the colors the best.
The colors in this picture aren't the best but it shows the interiors of both parts.

My boyfriend loved it (he says he "loves" everything I've made him) even though the lid warped in the baking/firing process. He ended up breaking it at the neck of the box (by accident), but once he gorilla glued it and sanded the glue down the lid fit perfectly. So it all worked out.

This is such a great idea. I think it's wonderful.

P.s. at first glance through I thought the top of the box was the guitar that you had taken the design from!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Thanks antidigger, that's always a great compliment to hear after it took hours of painting to get right Smiley

Cool! I, for one, think the strings look fine. When I clicked the thumbnail I thought it was a real guitar!

Wow! That's really cool! I made one for a friend out of paper mache.
